The Weekly Story ~ wk 77

While I spent most of this weekend, cleaning, clearing and sorting... there were no pretties to show you pictures .... *smiles*...

So while, I'm still talking about Yva's birthday party... and the craft ~ ladybird paper weights... Today, I'm going to show you the centre piece we created... 

Since it was a garden party... I wanted to have little pots with paper flowers as centre pieces... *sigh*.. However, like I said... this party was so unplanned... that I didn't have any crepe paper to make flowers... 

So we hunted the house down, and found these pin wheels... that then went into the pots... Yva added the umbrellas and lollipops to make them simply perfect...

So what do you think??

And we also found a little garden set, that Sims got from one of her santas this Christmas... We used the gardening tools... and ladybirds.... as decorative items too...

... do you like the end result?
